Denver Nuggets have beaten the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliersand LA Clippers.
Nuggets have taken over the top spot in the Western Conference alongside the Memphis Grizzlies.
Two-time defending MVP Nikola Jokic is putting together his third legitimate campaign for the award.
Teammates Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr., and Aaron Gordon made significant contributions.
Denver won't be able to easily overpower Memphis.
The Grizzlies have won seven straight games due to the fact that they have faced weaker opposition than the Nuggets.
With two more games against the Nuggets coming up in the next few months, Memphis will have plenty of chances to demonstrate that it can be the best team in the West.
Memphis has already shown it can hold off the third-place New Orleans Pelicans by defeating them in each of the last two meetings.
As New Orleans is only two and a half games behind Memphis and Denver in the West, the Pelicans have a chance in what appears to be a three-team race.
The Celtics were able to stay onto the top slot in the Eastern Conference despite the Nets' recent hot streak.
With Kevin Durant expected to miss a full month of activity just in time for two crucial matchups between the Nets and Celtics in the upcoming weeks, Boston may also be receiving a big boost in its fight to hold onto that position.
